One QC business is dreaming of a white thanksgiving. Last year's warm winter cost a local snow attraction whole lot of cash. Ski Snowstar in Andalusia banks on the cold weather to bring in business so this year managers say they're not taking any chances.
"We're gearing up to battle old man winter and maybe win this year," Ski Snowstar General Manager Ed Meyer said.
It was a hard fought battle but Snowstar general manager Ed Meyer said last year the weather won.
"There was no winter so it really tough for us, we typically see about 80 days, it was a rough season revenues were down substantially." Meyer said.
Meyer said last year Snowstar lost about 2 weeks and 30 percent of revenue. So, to make the most out of the snowy season Meyer said they've got to make more snow, more often.
"We bought two more snow guns and we built a 3 acre lake to give us more water," Meyer said.
He's ready to see the slopes packed. "Think snow, bring it on, talk to your weatherman and come on out and enjoy it because it's a whole lot of fun," Meyer said.
Meyer said they hope to start making snow next week and expects Ski Snowstar to open December 8th.
